    Just bought our first RV, used, Crossroads Bel Air 31' travel trailer! Was trying to find how to get a manual...or can I just get one of these general "tips for RVing" books to figure out how to do all this!! :)

    Hi Diane and welcome to the RVUSA Forum. The general tips for RVing books are okay, but you can probably learn just as much or more by looking thru the posts here on the forum.

    If you are looking for specific manuals for your refrigerator, stove, furnace, etc, you can check the manufacturers' web sites. Forum member Clay also recommends this company: http://bryantrv.com//index.html

    Good luck with your (new to you) travel trailer and post back if you have specific questions. We will always try to help. :) :)

    Rv's are just combinations of cars/trucks and houses.

    Mechanical issues are just like a car, but usually require bigger and more expensive parts.

    Plumbing is plumbing. Hot on the left, cold on the right, s__t runs down hill and don't chew your finger nails.

    Half the electric is 12 volt, the other half is 120 volt - don't mix them togrther.

    The appliances are compact models - they typically require manuals to understand -although you CAN figure them out.

    Take your time and do ONE THING AT A TIME.
